Goddess Kali took over New York City last week, quite literally and it's breathtaking!

The Hindu goddess was displayed on the facade of the building that is synonymous with New York, the iconic Empire State building.

Artist Android Jones designed the fierce portrait of Kali, who is the Goddess of Time, Change, Power and Destruction, to make the point that Mother Nature now more than ever needs a fierce avatar to fight the dangers of pollution and extinction.

It was the last, most captivating artwork in the exhibition by  filmmaker Louie Psihoyos called Projecting Change, which projected pictures of endangered creatures onto the NYC skyline with San Francisco based Obscura Digital.

It was meant to spark awareness of massive wildlife extinction, and to draw attention to the alarming rate at which species are dying. The show ended with a representation of Kali - the goddess of darkness - imploring people world over to fight the darkness and to take up conservation.

Cecil the lion, and other hundreds of nameless endangered animals were showcased on the Empire State Building.

I merged several photos to create this shot I took from the rooftop of tower 31. @obscura digital #projectingchange #racingextinction #empirestatebuilding #ops #kali
